Covington Picks Up 2 Kirkland Partners To Lead PE Practice

May 22, 2018, Law360

Scott Smith, Amy Wollensack, and Sergio Urias are quoted in a Law360 article regarding Wollensack and Urias' arrival to Covington, where they will serve as co-chairs of the firm's Private Equity practice. According to Smith, the pair have strong reputations in the private equity community. "They bring the needed leadership for the future growth of our private equity practice."

Wollensack says that the firm’s client list is a good fit for her and Urias’ practice and clients, adding that they "will be joining a strong team, which includes all of the practices needed to support our middle market private equity clients. We are enthusiastic about the many expert practices at Covington that will add further value to our clients, making it a one-stop shop for private equity deals."

Urias says that he is looking forward to working with Covington’s Latin American practice in addition to his private equity work. "Covington has leading Corporate, Arbitration, Investigative, Regulatory and Public Policy practices that make it a perfect fit for inbound and outbound Latin American work."
